What did you expect? Quoting from the docs,

"""The chars argument is not a prefix; rather, all combinations of its
values are stripped:

>>> ''.lstrip('cmowz.')
msg67755 - (view) Author: Jura (jsostok) Date: 2008-06-06 08:11
print '_element_no_of_hsscch'.lstrip.__doc__
S.lstrip([chars]) -> string or unicode

Return a copy of the string S with leading whitespace removed.
If chars is given and not None, remove characters in chars instead.
If chars is unicode, S will be converted to unicode before stripping

Ok, I didn't understand it correctly, because i red only __doc__ from
which is not the functionality clear. I found a workaround for it...

Let's leave it closed.
