When you complete the octets of the chlorine atoms, you have 24/28 electrons filled for the molecule. Adding double or triple bonds would decrease this number of overall electrons used by taking one from each atom. The only way to fill the quota of 28 electrons is to add two lone pairs, which is possible since I can form expanded octets.
