how covalent character increases when polarising power increases

Polarising power is the tendency of a cation to distract the electron cloud of anion towards itself.Thus, with the increase in polarizing power, the electron cloud of the anion is distracted more and more towards the cation which results  in delocalization of electron cloud between the cation and anion as in covalent compounds.So, covalent character increases when polarising power increases.
