According to Lewis and Kossel " a covalent bond is formed by the mutual sharing of electrons between two atoms. and in HClO2 the electron are not equally shared because there is two coordinated covalent bond is present between Cl and 2O that's y electron shift towards Oxygen and electronic cloud will be more towards oxygen as compared to Cl that y HClO 2 will be polar molecule.
